It is official. DJI has launched the DJI Mini 3 Pro, and the leak is accurate. There are some interesting improvements as compared to DJI Mini 2. I like the new controller and that it can shoot content in vertical mode.
Here is the intro video.
Most countries allow you to fly a drone without a license if it is under 250g. Like some of the DJI drones, this latest DJI Mini 3 Pro is below 250g which means you can fly it without a license (do check with your country’s authority before purchase). In Singapore, you do not need to register the drone if it is under 250g. Click HERE for more details.

Compared with DJI Mini 2 and Mavic Air 2, DJI Mini 3 Pro has improved battery life, intelligent features, video transmission, and a fully upgraded imaging system and visual sensing system.
Specifically: Inheriting the 249 g light and compact body, DJI Mini 3 Pro comes with a 1/1.3-inch image sensor that supports native HDR. It supports three-directional obstacle sensing and the newly upgraded APAS 4.0 (Advanced Pilot Assistance Systems). It supports DJI O3 FHD digital video transmission, ensuring a stable live feed at distances of up to 12 km.
